Diet Coke Cake

I've seen a few beer "cakes" on Pinterest lately and wanted to do a non-alcoholic version. So, when we were planning a birthday lunch for my Diet Coke-addicted friend, I thought it would be the perfect decoration/gift.

I (with the assistance of my hubby) cut 12, 10 and 8 inch circles out of a cardboard box.

Then, we stacked the cans. The top and bottom layers fit nicely but the center has some empty space in the middle. You need about 30 cans.

I wrapped ribbon around each layer and made a little topper out of scrapbook paper.

It's a quick project and ends up looking pretty impressive, if I do say so myself.

I don't suggest transporting the "cake" after construction. We had a few mishaps getting it from my house to the party. If you do need to move it, I would recommend hot gluing the cans to the cardboard.

I would also cover the cardboard with some tissue paper or fabric if I made it again. The brown cardboard look isn't that attractive. 

I saw the idea to use the "cake" for the guests to drink at the party, which would be fun too. You could maybe do different drinks for each layer.
